Best Dig Ever (Part 1)

Fruits of my recent two day storage facility dig.

Don't miss this 2 part mega show! Possibly the best dig I have ever done. Be sure to check out the Charles Vickers song poem on National Guild. I couldn't find much information about this record online, except the website about song poems. Who knew Gene Chandler had a big record on Constellation? Not me, thats for sure. 'Mr Big Shot' is an amazing soul dancer. Not to mention the female cover of 'I'll Go Crazy' by Ella Thomas, or the calypso funk by King Wellington! Wow...
